4 ways hydrotherapy actually helps

Helping Vets & Patients

Partnering with vets for post-surgery rehabilitation, the ‘hydrostatic pressure’ helps to relieve swelling & painful joints.

Safe & Steady

Water provides buoyancy, relieving the impact on joints & the musculoskeletal system. This allows muscle tone to be built without risking injury.

Arthritis Management

Perfect for maintaining muscle tone, relieving swelling & joint pain for arthritic & older dogs.

Efficient, Safe Weight-loss

A dog-equivalent of safe high-resistance, low impact interval training, without the jarring effects of regular exercise.

Annika has grown up with a passion and love for animals - especially dogs.

qualifications INCLUDE

  • Bachelor of Animal Science
  • Level 3 Certificate in Canine Hydrotherapy
  • Certificate in Canine Remedial Massage
  • Certificate in Canine First Aid

Success stories

We're proud our rehabilitation patients' roads to recovery with us. Here are their stories!

Cruciate Ligament Rehabilitation with Monti

Monti's Story

Bi-lateral Cruciate Ligament Rupture Rehabilitation with Willow

Following surgery Willow was suffering atrophy of the hind limbs and reluctance to use the surgery leg.

Willow's Story

Intervertebral Disc Disease Rehabilitation & Maintenance with Cinnamon

Following surgery Cinnamon could not use her hind limbs and was unable to walk (paraplegia in hind limbs).
